I will admit it was with quiet desperation that I first added some courgette to a smoothie – my supply of this veg is fast outweighing my ability to eat them. However I was surprised to find that it tasted ok, in fact the courgette added a little creaminess without too much taste (in a good way).
So after a few more experiments I think that this courgette smoothie is pretty good.
I’m still using my crop of yellow courgettes, but they taste the same as green so either goes.
Tropical Courgette Smoothie (serves one)
- 150g fresh pineapple
- 100g courgette (skin on)
- 150ml coconut milk (from a carton not a tin)
- A handful of mint leaves
- 1 tablespoon of Tahini
- 1 medjool date
Blend it all together.
